Swan Suite was just perfect to celebrate our anniversary. We loved the location, it was right across the street from China Town (check out Fan Tan Alley) and an easy 15 min walk from where the Victoria Clipper docks. Victoria is such an easy town to walk around in, I actually loved this location.
We were greeted by Angela at the front desk, and she was terrific! They had our room ready for an early check in, which we hadn't expected. They also gave us a bottle of champagne, which was another terrific surprise. The connecting brewery had great beer and pub food.
The hotel is full of eclectic art, giving this place a real authenticity to it; this is not just another hotel chain. We were soooo happy with the room: super clean, high ceilings, brick walls, juliet balconies, more art...did I mention this place has tons of character? There's a great kitchenette we wish we would had used, but maybe next time, because we will definitely be back!
The only warning we would have is that if you do not like noise, you should book a room that is not above the brewery. For us, this was not a problem since we were planning on staying up anyways. You could tell the locals enjoy this place too, which is a great sign.
